    Charles 'The Irish Giant' Byrne, and 'Mr Jeffs', a pair of skeletons in the Hunterian Museum.

    Byrne (1761 to 1783) grew to a height of 7'7". Famous in his day, he exhibited himself as a giant. One day his pocket was picked of his 700 life savings and, inconsolable, he drank himself to an early grave at the age of 22.

    Mr Jeffs (foreground) had a disease called Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva which causes bone to form inside muscles and tendons, locking joints together and forming bridges between bones.

    B grade pencil on A3 paper, 2.5 hours.

    Nice landscapes, it seems that you are able to transmit that "bony" and otherwordly feel from your life studies to the enviros. Don't be afraid to use brighter and more saturated colours, now some of the enviros look a bit "milky".

    Good work anyway, keep it up!

    Rattus - thanks

    Abrodos - you're right about the colours, I've been doing a lot of observational pencil study recently but I intend to study how to use colour effectively next.

    Rostas - Cheers, I'll do by best so yeah, there'll be more

    A few more recent bits.
